Luis Fabiano eyes United move

Published Add your comment

Brazil striker Luis Fabiano has revealed a move to Manchester United would be "very attractive".

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has indicated there will be few changes to his playing staff as they seek to regain the title. And Sevilla striker Luis Fabiano, who netted twice for his country in the World Cup defeat of Ivory Coast, would relish a move to Old Trafford - or the San Siro.

He said: "I have made it clear I will not be signing a new contract with Sevilla and at 29 I now need to join a club where I can start challenging for the highest honours from the first season. The choice will come down to Manchester United and AC Milan, That is the sort of team I want to be signing for, one of the true giants of Europe."

Luis Fabiano added in Daily Star Sunday: "I think the way Manchester United play football is very attractive. I must be honest and say Premier League football attracts me and also the way Manchester United play football attracts me.

"You think about being Wayne Rooney's strike partner and that is very attractive for any striker."

"Their coach is a winner, their players are winners and they are one of the few teams in Europe challenging for the top honours season after season.

"As soon as the World Cup is over I will make a quick decision on my future - and while it is going on I hope Sevilla can open discussions. I have enjoyed my time here but I now need to be at a giant."

His vision does not include a switch to Tottenham, with whom he has been linked recently.

Luis Fabiano added: "There would be no point in me joining Tottenham, I might as well stay at Sevilla, it's the same thing.

"Sevilla are actually bigger when you look at how much we have been in the European Cup, so there would be no point me moving to a smaller team."
